SANCHEZ-MUNIZ, Francisco J  and  SBASTIDA, Miguel. COVID-19 and the Mother Earth's day. JONNPR [online]. 2020, vol.5, n.6, pp.603-615.  Epub May 03, 2021. ISSN 2529-850X.

This brief article has no other purpose than to make a reflection on different aspects of our existence that come together in keeping our house, the "Earth" alive and livable. It has been written in difficult and cruel moments in which Spain already exceeds 23,000 deaths and we Spaniards, are confined suffering a quarantine caused by COVID-19. Last April 22nd we celebrated, like many years before, a day dedicated to our Mother Earth; fact that has motivated the tittle of this article, which strives to trace the relationships that exist between the processes of environmental collapse and the emergence of new pandemics. After a brief exposition of some central characteristics about the Coronavirus, the article reflect on the concept of solidarity and otherness. There is no search for culprits in this work, only an instigation to reflect and dust-off "old" writings such as the Earth's Charter that are still new and very unknown, and which we must be read and implemented in order to become authentic prodigal children.

Keywords : COVID-19; Earth Charter; Solidarity; pandemic.
